Chile Coat of Arms / Emblem

The coat of arms of Chile was designed by the English artist Charles Wood Taylor and was adopted on 26 June 1834. A five pointed white star is in the centre of the shield that was supported in one side by an Andean condor, Chile's national bird, and in the other, by a huemul, Chile's national animal, each with sporting the navy's golden crown, symbol of the heroic deeds of the Chilean Navy in the Pacific Ocean.
The coat of arms is crowned by a three feathered crest; each feather bearing one colour: blue, white and red, the colors of Chile's national flag.
Underneath the coat of arms and on the elaborated pedestal, there is a white band with the motto: "Por la Razón o la Fuerza" (By reason or force).
